• A full 2,400 lumens of brightness and stunning picture quality with 500,000:1 contrast ratio.
• Color purity is further increased by applying condenser lenses with special coating.
• A whole new level of 3D viewing with 3D Motion Remaster technology.
• Intelligent Lens Memory with auto detection: Automatic image size optimization between 16:9 and 2.35:1 video content.*
The new 220 W Red-Rich Lamp increases the luminous efficiency of the projector to achieve brighter images, even in 3D viewing, with excellent color purity.
Able to produce a stunning brightness of 2,400 lm, the PT-AE8000 unleashes the beauty of 2D/3D full-HD expression for viewing on various screen sizes. Cooling efficiency for example around the polarization filters has been increased to realize the higher lumens. Color purity is further increased by applying a special coating to the red and green condenser lenses in order to trim the impurities from the light after it is separated into the three primary colors.
The Pure Contrast Plates in the PT-AE8000 use a high-precision crystalline material that is carefully matched to the characteristics of the LCD panels to effectively correct the passage of light exiting the panels.This enables the projector to block unwanted light leakage and successfully increases the dynamic range. It works together with the Pure Color Filter Pro and Dynamic Iris Pro to achieve an astounding contrast ratio of 500,000:1.
The PT-AE8000 features 480 Hz-driven LCD panels, which lengthen the time that the shutter is open about 1.5 times the duration of a 240-Hz drive system. Together with Panasonic’s original high-precision overdrive technology, this improves the brightness of the images viewed through 3D Eyewear, while at the same time minimizing crosstalk, or double image seen as a result of the left image entering the right eye and vice versa.
Active Shutter 3D provides an overwhelming 3D experience by delivering Full-HD images to both eyes.Panasonic&s 3D Motion Remaster technology was developed to futhur enhance the naturalness and realism of Active Shutter 3D images.
Up to six settings can be stored in the Lens Memory, including zoom and focus positions for projecting in the normal 16:9 or 4:3 image ratio, and wide cinema projection settings. These settings can be manually recalled or set for automatic switching. The projector is able to detect 2.35:1 and 16:9 sources and retrieve the stored settings automatically.
The new Lens Memory function also supports 3D viewing. For 3D viewing, the settings can be manually recalled.
The Lens Memory function lets you easily view images with different image ratios on a wide 2.35:1 screen for an immersive, theater-like experience.
This color correction system enables free color control in two different modes. The Point Color Correction mode lets you pick a point in the image and adjust that color without affecting the neighboring colors. The Six Color Correction mode enables independent adjustment of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow. Adjustment is possible for either 2D or 3D viewing.
